In celebration of 1k followers!
holy shit how did that happenI’ve been compiling this list for a while so some of the URLs are probably outdated.
Please know that if I left you out, it is not personal. I follow over 800 people and I had to narrow it down a lot! I still love you guys + your blogs. <3
I’m sure I screwed up the alphabetizing somewhere. Don’t tell me if I did.

THE FRENCH ANGEL
Maurice Tillet also known as the French Angel, was a professional wrestler. As a child he was nicknamed “French Angel” for his angelic face. But when Tillet turned 17, he began to notice swelling in his feet and hands. The doctor diagnosed with acromegaly - a condition usually caused by a tumor on the pituitary gland. This results in bone overgrowth and thickening.
He wanted to become a lawyear but his acromegaly prevented him from doing that. He served as an engineer in the French navy for 5 years. Tillet met a professional wrestler in 1937 who convinced him to join the business. He won many heavy weight championships. Unfortunately, he died on 1954 from a heart disease. (Wiki Page)
My third month of Artsnacks. This post was a bit long, but it couldn’t be helped, because oh my goodness this month was more like an Artmeal (I may just trademark that.) Anyway, hope you enjoy.
ArtSnacks is like a magazine subscription but instead of a magazine you get 4 or 5 different art products to try out.

Hitler’s doodles form the 1920’s when sketching Nazi symbol ideas.
I can’t believe one of the world’s feared political/hate groups had an asterisk for their symbol.
Imagine an alternate universe where a swastika indicates a footnote in a text book.
